How is shn "not factory cd quality"?

Don't even bother answering, shn has nothing to do with the quality of the sound whatsoever.

really???? not sure you know what you are talking about. no offense man - shn may be lossless, but it aint factory cd quality. sorry to disappoint ya - trust me i aint complaining about this site - and yes, i know, the digitalsoundboard.net releases are a bit better than the shn/flac files. not sure what you are saying though - please explain.

I'm saying you can shorten any quality or resolution of sound and that what you use to compress it has nothing whatsoever to do with what you start with.

It kinda depends how well you photograph or scan the book, but lossless means nothing is tossed from the sample. And sampling from a master tape is better if that's what you mean.

And higher sampling rates are better than lower, and better equipment and better adjustments etc. and endless cetera,

it's just a meaningless thing to say 'shn is not factory cd quality'

there is just no meaning whatsoever to the statement.

It sounds like someone from some cd factory trying to make it seem that their commercial cds are capable of producing better sound than shortened sound files can produce. Which is not in any sense or by any stretching of the English language a true statement.

Which is why I said don't even bother answering way back then when this was fresh.

But even Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh fans should understand that archiving a file to .zip doesn't lose information. Flac might be preferred because it is faster and makes smaller files.
